Probably best known as the Season 3 winner of "American Idol," Fantasia Barrino — known simply as Fantasia — has had a moderately successful career.
She's proven that she was no one-hit wonder with numerous awards and nominations, including several Grammy nods and a win in 2010 for "Bittersweet." In a press statement, Fantasia said making music "is my therapy. Some people do yoga, some people go sit out by the water. My thing is putting my feelings into my music and sharing that with people who are going through some of the same things," she said. "Every song [I sing] is the truth, and that's the best thing for me."
This event is billed as "A Night of Love & Laughter." Opening up are the self-described "clean comedian" Travele Judon (a.k.a. Velle Vel) and R&B up-and-comer Raven Choice.
